    Azlan Othman

    With 12 days away from ushering in the new year, Muslims were told to self-reflect on what they have done in the past 12 months and assess and overcome any shortfalls.

    This was highlighted by Islamic Da’wah Centre (PDI) Officer Mohammad Nasyith bin Superi from RPN Kampong Mata-Mata Mosque, Gadong during a religious talk at the weekly Munajat night on Saturday.

    He said, “When striving to change for the better, an individual must change for Allah the Almighty who opens up a pathway, facilitates such transition and gives extraordinary strength.

    “The question is whether we are prepared to change or one is still in doubt whether to make such changes or not. We should ask ourselves if we wish to be like before and resist changes.”

    On Saturday, the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA) organised the Munajat night for the 66th time.

    Minister of Religious Affairs Pehin Udana Khatib Dato Paduka Seri Setia Ustaz Haji Awang Badaruddin bin Pengarah Dato Paduka Haji Awang Othman and Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs Pengiran Dato Seri Paduka Haji Mohd Tashim bin Pengiran Haji Hassan also participated with the congregants. Brunei-Muara District Officer Misle bin Haji Abdul Karim led the recitation of Sayyidul Istighfar and Surah Al-Fatihah.

    Joining the congregation were takmir committee members of Ar-Rahman Mosque in Kampong Tanjung Bunut, RPN Kampong Mata-Mata Mosque, Gadong and students from the Institute of Brunei Technical Education (IBTE) Sultan Bolkiah Campus in Seria.

    The weekly Munajat night also saw the participation of a delegation from the PDI, on a goodwill visit to Putussibau, Kabupatin Kapuas Hulu, West Kalimantan, Indonesia.

    PDI Head of Muslim Converts Development Pengiran Haji Jufri bin Pengiran Haji Hidop led the delegation.

    Participants from nearly 100 mosques, suraus and religious halls and the workforce at the MoRA and their family members also participated.

    The recitation of Surah Yaasiin was led by a Higher National Technical Education Certificate IT student Muhammad Qamarul Hamizan bin Minor Absah, along with staff and students of IBTE Sultan Bolkiah Campus in Seria while Doa Munajat was read by the Principal of Bandar Seri Begawan Arabic Preparatory School Pengiran Hasinol Zamri bin Pengiran Haji Piut.

    The religious gathering concluded with the recitation of Asmaa Ul-Husna by Mohammad Iman bin Haji Ibrahim from Dakwah Volunteer (Youth Body) at the PDI and Doa Peliharakan Sultan dan Negara Brunei Darussalam by Mosque Affairs Officer at the MoRA Saufi bin Haji Suhaini from Ar-Rahman Mosque.

    The Munajat night invites congregants to multiply their daily religious practice by reciting Al-Quran, supplicate, perform Zikir, and Istighfar to seek forgiveness and blessings from Allah the Almighty as well as pray for the people to be spared from any unwanted elements and curb COVID-19.
